Liverpool & Tottenham chase unsettled African striker
Liverpool & Tottenham transfer news: Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse linked with exit
Newcastle striker Papiss Cisse is a reported target for Liverpool and Tottenham with suggestions the Senegal international is becoming frustrated with life at St James' Park.
The pursuit of goalscoring reinforcements would appear to be a January transfer window priority for Liverpool, while Spurs are also light up front, and Cisse is reported to be considering his future with Newcastle.
According to The Mirror, Liverpool and Spurs are both monitoring Cisse with the Newcastle star struggling to replicate his stunning form from last season.
Cisse scored 13 goals in 14 games after joining Newcastle from Freiburg in January, with the 27-year-old netting the goal of the season against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in May.
He has, however, scored only just once for Newcastle in the Premier League this season and his current predicament has seemingly caught the attention of both Liverpool and Spurs.
Luis Suarez is the only senior striker available to Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers and bringing at least one more forward to Anfield in January is surely a must for the Reds.
Tottenham, meanwhile, are slightly better stocked up front with Jermain Defoe and Emmanuel Adebayor among their number, but Andre Villas-Boas is likely to further bolster his forward department, should the opportunity arise.
